CAUSAS DE ELEFANTIASIS PDF

Estas larvas circulan por la sangre e infectan a los mosquitos. Por si fuera poco, los pacientes sufren infecciones recurrentes por hongos y bacterias que les dejan postrados en la cama durante semanas o meses. Un mal de los pobres. En zonas en las que proliferan los mosquitos, pero las personas carecen de medios o conocimiento para protegerse de las picaduras. Los afectados no pueden cultivar los campos ni concentrarse en la escuela, abandonan la vida productiva y dilapidan sus medios en curas infructuosas hasta que apenas les alcanza para comer, como explica la paciente nigeriana y madre de seis hijos Rahab Joshua. En otros casos, el factor limitante no son los recursos sino los propios ministerios de salud, que no consideran prioritaria esta enfermedad: no es letal; prevalece en zonas rurales y numerosos afectados viven escondidos por temor al rechazo.
